So, how far do you go when trying to make wiser or simpler choices?
What crosses the line for you?
What creature comforts are just so not worth giving up?
I’m sure there are cheaper, more healthy choices to use when the need strikes me to cover up my blotchy skin…..I just haven’t looked yet.
So, this time when it was nearing the end of supply and the bottle started to fart, I took that split second moment to question my NEED for this luxury….it’s been about four weeks since I asked myself that question.
Here’s what I’ve done since then…
Can you believe that I have used what is in there for FOUR WEEKS?? When I normally would have just tossed it and went out to buy a new one….I have applied some rational thought and took it upon myself to cut up the neat and pretty packaging that the marketing people make us think is sacred and not to be ‘scraped’…
A FOUR WEEK SUPPLY and there is probably still enough for a couple of more weeks…
Makes me wonder what other kinds of things we regularly toss out when there is still life left in them if we only look at it a little differently? I’d love to hear from you in the comments if you have found ways of applying this same principle to other items….I’ll feature your ideas on a future blog….I think it is just that important to think differently, and take action..!
This stuff jazzes me up folks – if you haven’t read my Who Am I ? tab, then you may not know this about me:
(I’m) Currently devoted to redeeming things others have passed by,
passed on, passed over or dismissed.
I am looking at life with a new lens.
